Whitewater rafting can be a difficult sport and looks much easier than it is. It takes skill to maneuver the raft to prepare for what is ahead. In this sport nature throws obstacles at you in the form of rapids, waves, fallen trees, debris, undercut rocks, drop offs, and waterfalls. An inflatable boat is most often used when there are multiple passengers. Kayaking is also popular on the rapids. Waterways are rated with Grades 1 – 6. A Grade 6 waterway is so dangerous that it’s almost impossible to safely navigate a raft. Death or serious injury are expected with a Grade 6 waterway. Are you extreme enough to ride the rapids?
